We received a very warm welcome by Throey into a perfect holiday house. The kitchen was excellent and supplied with the basics that you needed (salt pepper tea and coffee). There was plenty to do in the nearby surroundings and it was very comfortable to stay at the farm too. We are hoping to return! more

Management response:

Thank you Patricia and friends, I look forward to see you again :) more
